I have been an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy books since I was a kid. I hated reading until I first opened up The Hobbit and then delved into the world of Middle Earth with The Lord of the Rings in the seventh grade. J.R.R. Tolkien taught me to love reading. So I may have him to thank for my later love of reading the Bible as well.
I did not realize when I was younger how much Tolkien and Lewis’s Christian faith influenced the words of The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia. It turns out that they are two among many fantasy and science fiction authors whose faith influenced their writing.
I wondered . . . besides Tolkien and Lewis, who else is writing Christian fantasy and science fiction stories?
I put together this book list of Christian Fantasy and Science Fiction and divided it into several categories:
- Children’s Picture Books
- Children’s Chapter Books
- Middle Grade Fiction
- Young Adult Fiction
- Adult Fiction
I hope as a Christian fantasy or sci-fi reader (or a parent who is raising one!), you will find this book list to be a helpful guide:
A Note about this Book List
These science fiction and fantasy stories have Christian themes and characters in them. I make no judgements about doctrine or denominations with this list nor is this list an endorsement of the faithfulness of any particular author. Nevertheless, I hope these books will lead people into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.
